the birding event of the year for Colorado birders!
Each year attendees experience a different part of Colorado and see new birds and habitats with field trips led by local experts.
In addition to the daily field trips, attendees can learn about new research on Colorado birds in the scientific session, attend several social events, and celebrate another year of birding, education, and research on Colorado's birds with an evening banquet that includes a special guest speaker.
This is a great opportunity to meet new friends, renew old friendships, and learn about birds in an informal atmosphere.
